Super fast and very helpful support

I regretted the domain and wanted to buy another one instead. Simply.com's support answered almost immediately, did ALL the work of transferring my homepage to the new domain and suite and even gave me some tips on how to inc... More rease the performance of my homepage. All in 1 day, all for free. I am amazed! Less
Great Support and Price
Grant Oakes,

I've used Hostwinds for nearly 2 years and they have been excellent during my stay. However, I am looking at leaving because they have IP issues, mainly, some of the major (Gmail, Outlook, MSN, etc) ISP's block email traffic,... More claiming it's SPAM. Apparently, they have some SPAMMERS on their servers and some IP blocks are blacklisted. I have been forced to get a Gmail account so I can send outbound emails, which is a major pain. I've raised this issue with tech support too many times to count but the problem persists. I'd love to stay with them but I have to move on. Less

Misleading pricing on domains
Linus Lorentzen,

Misleading pricing for domain registration. Price for domain is shown as the final price, but when you proceed and want to pay the price has changed. They don't let you bye a (.DK) domain without their DNS and they charge you... More for creating it. The issue has been there for years. I filed a complaint to the danish authorities back in 2017. Simply.com support is rude and ignores the obviously facts. Less
Terrible hosting
STEPHANIE GILLUM,

Terrible hosting. Even one Wordpress site does not work on the "Ultimate Business" tariff plan!!! The support service does not solve the problem! When I don't use the site, the RAM is not used. As soon as I work with the site... More , I do elementary things: creating a new Wordpress page, adding a product, then the RAM is working at maximum and the site gives a 503 error. This can't be on a simple Wordpress site. Your hosting works disgusting! Less
